• The Actors: Gerard Butler, ‘Machine Gun Preacher’
    By NICOLE SPERLING, LOS ANGELES TIMES
    SEP. 4, 2011 12 AM
    Gerard Butler is crying.

    It’s a sunny afternoon and the actor best known as King Leonidas in “300" had just sauntered into a Los Feliz eatery, fresh off his Harley, adorned in a black T-shirt, army green pants and a helmet tucked close to his newly trim body. He’s charmed the wait staff, ordered a salad along with his café latte so his guest won’t have to eat alone, and is affably sharing anecdotes. Yet the moment he revisits his time in South Africa, playing Sam Childers, the real-life gun-wielding preacher who went to the Sudan and started an orphanage, his emotions can’t be contained.

    “This happened to me a lot when we were filming. I would just be overcome,” he says through tears. “I feel every emotion. I haven’t talked much about this movie in a while, and I did the other day, and I just started crying. I cried for about five minutes.”

    This time Butler’s crying jag lasts a good two minutes.

    “I don’t know how I’m going to get through this,” he says with a laugh while wiping his eyes as he ponders the exhaustive national media tour he’s about to embark on to promote his upcoming passion project “Machine Gun Preacher,” which opens Sept. 23.

    Directed by Marc Forster (“Quantum of Solace”), “Preacher” forced Butler to examine his own demons as he embodied the violent, rageful Childers, a rural Pennsylvania native who transformed his drug-riddled, crime-filled life after finding God. Childers’ born-again experience led him to becoming a preacher in his hometown before traveling to Africa, where he came upon hundreds of children orphaned at the hands of the Lord’s Resistance Army, which was staging a violent campaign throughout Uganda, Sudan and the Congo. The atrocities propelled Childers to found an orphanage in Sudan in 1998 that now houses more than 200 children and feeds more than 1,000.

    “A lot of the feelings I felt with Sam, the violence and the craziness, being out of control and not knowing how to live your life, I had all that,” says Butler, who remade himself as an actor after his unhappiness with his first career as a lawyer led him to use alcohol and drugs. “Did I go around stabbing people and shooting people? No. Did I end up in Africa building an orphanage? No. But I did have a massive transformation in my life where I sorted everything out.”

    For Butler, who from July 2009 through March 2010 starred in what “could have been a career killer” five movies (including “The Ugly Truth” and “Law-Abiding Citizen”), the commitment to the part of Childers began a year before the cameras even started rolling. The 41-year-old Scot would sporadically meet with Forster and screenwriter Jason Keller for marathon sessions to deconstruct each scene. It’s clearly a movie that affects him deeply but also one that allows him to “gain some gravitas and weight as an actor,” he says.

    It was also a unique experience for Keller to work so closely with a film’s star.

    “I think it was a great responsibility for Gerry to play the role of a guy who is alive, a guy who is as dynamic as Sam with a story that’s so incredible,” says Keller. “During the sessions, and even when we were filming, I saw him going deeper and deeper [into the role]. It was an incredible burden [for him].”

Society is not innocent in this case, but it is not seen this way. The lack of treating everyone with dignity as a human being is not in many peoples hearts, it would not be this way if the schools would care about education as well as instilling good values. This will not only continue but get worse, as societies hate so easily.

  • "30% of American millennials say they are lonely. Over 20% report they have no friends; 25% claim to have no close ones. Many even insist that they have no acquaintances."

    This is most likely the cause of the feeling of despair which leads unstable people to commit heinous crimes & go on a stabbing or shooting spree to harm/kill random people. Too many people rely on social media for their friendships, never really learning what a real life friend actually is. While social media allows us to communicate in ways we could not in the past, it also causes some people to not understand true social interaction and leads to these types of feelings of loneliness and despair. This is the cause that we should be trying to remedy as opposed to outlawing whatever device someone chooses to employ when they go off the deep end . . .

  • Hunting psychopaths and weeding them out is the only solution to our world's problems. By ridding our world of these destructive pests, we'll ensure our future is safe. Every child born in hospitals shall be scrutinised for any psychopathic traits. If any are detected, they will be weeded out. We don't need one psychopath to grow up and ruins our world for his/her own benefits at the expense of OURS. All psychopaths without any empathy, conscience, etc are all destroyed within hours after their birth. This is the LAW established in the 2058 A.D. Since then, existing psychopaths have been losing their powers and without any psychopaths being birthed, the sanity returns to Mankind and without psychopaths funding useless wars (useful to psychopaths, not useful to the rest of mankind) the peace grew all over the world and prosperity unrivaled since then grew and mankind finally enters true Golden Age Prosperity where now mankind lives in Space in Spaceships, in Domes on the Moon, and on Mars and many are spreading out among the stars, and all by ridding ourselves of the malignant narcissist-sociopaths and psychopaths. We holds to our history, a lesson paid in blood of the innocents, and without psychopaths ruining our lives, we prospered like never before. All of us, true Mankind, empathic, consciences, with deep feelings, grew prosperity everywhere. Peace reigns among us supreme. War became forgotten except as a very painful lesson in our classes that we must NEVER FORGET. Just one psychopath is enough to ruin everything. Thus our LAW keeps us safe from the scourge of the monster psychopath. The final lesson, without psychopaths, our children, our babies, are SAFE. Never again will any psychopath be tolerated, never permitted to live beyond the next few hours necessary to discover any traits. No psychopaths shall ever live, ever. Thus our children are safe. And Mankind's existence is assured. Within 20 years, psychopaths aged and died out, and new generations without any psychopathic genes are assured the continuation of sane Mankind, spreading goodness and happiness and true freedom among the world and among the stars. The LAW is a revolutionary method that kept Mankind safe from the scourges of evil psychopaths. It worked. 100%. No rapists ever exists any more. No murderers exists any more. No manipulative malignant narcissist-sociopaths exists any more. Only SANE peaceful productive people exists, and we REIGNS SUPREME.

  • "Objective reality and truth don’t really matter to them. What matters to them is how you make them feel. If you control their feelings, you control their minds. You don’t even have to make them feel nice things — they just want to feel something.

    They’re addicted to feeling, and you can easily control addicts by leveraging their addiction. The Jews do this through things like the “sexual liberation” of women, “empowerment” and all of that stuff that’s just a way for women to feel more." - Pomidor Quixote

  • PSYCHOPATHS & SOCIOPATHS - WHO ARE THEY ?

    "A psychopath is defined as having no concern for the feelings of others & a complete disregard for any sense of social obligation. They seem egocentric and lacking insight and any sense of responsibility or consequence. Their emotions are thought to be superficial and shallow, if they exist at all. They are considered callous, manipulative and incapable of forming lasting relationships, let alone of any kind of love. It is thought that any emotions which the true psychopath exhibits are the fruits of watching and mimicking other people's emotions. They show poor impulse control and a low tolerance for frustration and aggression. They have no empathy, remorse, anxiety or guilt in relation to their behavior. In short, they truly are devoid of conscience.
    Psychopaths also have a markedly distorted sense of the potential consequences of their actions, not only for others, but also for themselves. They do not, for example, deeply recognize the risk of being caught, disbelieved or injured as a result of their behaviour."
    Robert D. Hare

  • Until Emissions Drop, Nothing Has Been Accomplished: The Climate Resistance Handbook Is Here.
    https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/07/19/until-emissions-drop-nothing-has-been-accomplished-climate-resistance-handbook-here
    By Greta Thunberg, Daniel Hunter

    Common Dreams editor's note: The following excerpts are taken from the Foreward, by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, and the Introduction, by 350[dot]org campaigner Daniel Hunter, of the new Climate Resistance Handbook (Or, I Was Part of a Climate Action. Now What?) recently published online. If you're wondering how to build a powerful, strategic movement that can make big wins for climate action, this is your guide. The excerpts are published here with permission from the authors. Learn more or get your copy of the handbook here: [https://trainings.350.org/climate-resistance-handbook/]

    From the Foreward by Greta Thunberg:

    I don't want your hope. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act.

    Around the year 2030, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilisation as we know it. That is unless in that time, permanent and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society have taken place, including a reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 50%.

    And please note that these calculations are depending on inventions that have not yet been invented at scale, inventions that are supposed to clear the atmosphere of astronomical amounts of carbon dioxide.

    People always tell me and the other millions of school strikers that we should be proud of ourselves for what we have accomplished. But the only thing that we need to look at is the emission curve. And I’m sorry, but it’s still rising. That curve is the only thing we should look at.

    Every time we make a decision we should ask ourselves; how will this decision affect that curve? We should no longer measure our wealth and success in the graph that shows economic growth, but in the curve that shows the emissions of greenhouse gases. We should no longer only ask: "Have we got enough money to go through with this?" but also: "Have we got enough of the carbon budget to spare to go through with this?" That should and must become the centre of our new currency.

    I hope you will join me in acting. I hope this book helps give you a place to start and to keep going.

    We have to act, to change the politics that allows this destruction to continue. We have to act urgently, because we simply have to find a way.

    From the Introduction, by Daniel Hunter:

    The sense of urgency on climate has never been higher than now. We are in a serious crisis. If humans want to have a planet like the one we have lived on for millions of years, we have to adjust. We have to change. We have to do it quickly.

    Thankfully, we have a wealth of elders to learn from. Regular people have changed the course of history. They have overthrown iron-fisted governments, fought for inclusion, for more democratic and fair systems. While those in power resisted, those with less power used social movements to force change.

    We can learn from them that change does not happen just be‐cause an issue is important. People have to wage a struggle to fight for the Earth’s climate. This is because the climate has an array of enemies: governments, corporations, media sources, and at times our own consumption and behavior.

    So we need to bind together to create the strongest movement possible. Movements win because they channel the feelings of urgency, anger, fear — and our sense of this being wrong — into a force for change.

    If you're with me, then this book is for you. Let’s begin.
